February Photo Challenge: Love

photo blog challenge

Well, I had visions of wonderful “Love” photos for February’s photo challenge from our winter vacay to Mexico. They were going to be fabulous. And then this happened. 

The month became a blur and now it’s time to share……and I’m literally putting this together the afternoon of February 28th. So, for what it’s worth, here’s my five for Love.

Love #1
Twix turned three years old earlier this month….back when life was more normal than it is now. As tough as it sometimes is to keep her mind stimulated, she’s such a delight to have around every day. It goes without saying that the grand girls are right at the top of the Love List.

Love #2
Along those lines, Twix loved getting a birthday phone call from a set of great-grandparents who sang happy birthday to her. When asked how old she was, she was happy to show them.

Love #3
In this part of the state, everyone LUVS Central Dairy ice cream…from a local dairy that made its mark in middle Missouri back in 1920. A second location was established in 1934 and included an ice cream parlor, which is still in operation today.

Love #4
I love it when our family is all together…wherever it may be. This is a feeble attempt to maneuver a selfie-stick at a local restaurant to commemorate the occasion.

Love #5
And why, you may ask, was everyone together in middle Missouri in the middle of February and not on a Caribbean beach? Well, in case you missed the link at the beginning of the post, it was because of Entrepreneur’s recent brain surgery…on the day we are suppose to celebrate Love….February 14th, Valentine’s Day. Not exactly the way I’d intended to spend the day, but there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned crisis to bring together those you love most. And it drives home the importance of those Love vows we took 36+ years ago.

There’s my February Five. I hope you find time to make your way over to PJ’s place to share in some more blogging love.

  1. My goodness, 3 years have gone by so fast!
    She is just adorable, Lisa.
    I really do think of you each day, say some prayers, and hope that everyone is doing okay.
    Stay as strong as you are, my friend.

  2. Isn’t it something how that when we go through challenging and scary times in our lives, the love that’s present becomes all the more stronger? It’s like we can feel it as if being wrapped by an embrace.

    Beautiful selection of photographs, Lisa! You can definitely feel the LOVE.

    You are always in my thoughts and prayers, my friend!

  3. Holy cow… I just read your post about surgery. I can relate to so much… a year ago my healthy 22 year old son went in to cardiac arrest… I lived in the hospital with him… he was supposed to die… he had open heart surgery… HE LIVED. You go from the “same old same old” to your entire world being ROCKED.

    So… about the pictures….. 🙂 Of course, the last is my favorite!

  4. Just…don’t know what to say…

    So glad to read your husband made it through surgery okay and to know that your grandbabies are there to help with unlimited hugs. I hope every day is better than the one before and thank you for reminding me to express love and gratitude everyday to everyone who holds a piece of my heart. Sending hugs.


  5. I think what I really appreciate about these photos is you can feel the love in them. They show something special to you and tells a story. Great job this month. Family photos are always the best with a theme like this. 🙂
